Look Out the Window / WantedPerry Como ~  Wanted  45 RPM Extended Play Album

In 1943, one-time barber Perry Como launched his solo singing career, and the one-time crooner and trombonist Jack Fulton started writing songs. Their paths crossed some years later when "Wanted", a Fulton song that Perry recorded and made one of the big hits of 1954. An intriguing feature of this pretty performance by Perry is the way his voice seems to float over the gentle shuffle rhythm in the background.
